    Well, we can all agree that Adam is eliminated as a possibility. Many have argued that Adam and Eve produced daughters , and leave it at that. But I see no reason why Eve would not have been an option as well. I'm sure that in that time and place it would have seemed perfectly natural for mothers to mate with their sons, and for fathers to mate with their daughters.  If you are the only people in the world, then you really have no choice but to get the party started  any way you can.

      We can assume that many people were seeded in the Earth at once. However, population would still be isolated in small tribes. As a result, I wager that incest was the norm. Didn't you ever watch "Deliverance?"

    First of all, there weren't just two people on the earth.  There were perhaps thousands.The biblical idea that there were just two people on the earth is pure hyperbole.  So their sons mated with women outside their tribal group & multiplied the human race.

    For an atheist to take a literal interpretation of the Bible, especially genesis, is illogical to start with. Such non sequitur premises are used by many atheists purely for the sake of mockery of entire religions. Such behaviour is not scientific, unethical and atypical of true atheist university level studies of religion. Sensationalist bigoted premises don't belong in serious discussions but are deliberately designed to "troll" discussions ie purely for the sake of offense and controversy.

    The word in the original Hebrew is not a man's name, Adam, but the word for "mankind," which is adam.  Spelled the same in English, but two totally different ideas.  And the word Eve does not appear.  Instead, it is yitzah, meaning woman, or all females.  Thus, when mankind and womankind had offspring, there were definitely more than just two people.

      Because the original Hebrew word for "Adam" is not a name, it is a word meaning "mankind." the word "Adam" is a transliteration (not translation) of אָדָם . The translation of the [ transliteration ] adam, is "mankind."

    The accounts in the bible tell us at Romans 5:12. The cure would be provided also by one man.
    1Cor 15:21.
    So we all as humans have genetically inherit death from Adam.
    If God had created another man the way he did Adam direct we would not be here.
    We sin and die like Adam
    If another man was created then he would not have genetically the problem we all have. God could have easliy destroyed Adam and Eve after their betrayal but he did not to save their offspring us.
    That is why Jesus paid the cost with his life for us.
    Next how did the earth get populated.  Through relatives
    Not quickly.  But there was no law that you could not marry a cousin or relatives.
    Remember Adam and Eve also had other children who had children so they married cousins.
    The next thing to remember is Adam lived without a mate for a long time. Then when he received a mate he still did not have children for awhile. It was after they sinned that children came into this world but marked by them. And we carry their mark of genetically we can die no matter even if we have good health. Our life force can leave the body.

    The mythology have change greatly since Jewish era and Christian era. The original story before Christianity, Adam and Eve were originally from a story of ancient Africa pegan faith.

    In the original story, there many gods in heaven. Amount the many gods, there was one name Yahwha (AKA Christ), Yahwha has a son (later Judiasm name him Adam) Adam married a beautiful goddess name, who is a strong and independent woman. (Later Hebraw name her Lilith) But Adam is what we today refer to as a rich spoil brat and demand for Lilith to serve him, unwillingly, Lilith left and came down to earth, using mud, she created many human (thus in original story, man are not created by Christ, but by Lilith) because she is lonely, Angry Yahwha threaten to send floods and demons to kill Lilith's children if she don't return. Lilith said no, So, Yahwha send a giant flood to flood the earth and send demons. Lilith kill the demon and seal the portal in heaven that allow flood water to come, but by that stage, many of Lilith's children died. Lilith created a powerful dragon name Satan to protect her children and return to heaven, for her revenge, Because Lilith refuse to return, yahwha took a rib from Adam and create a woman to be his wife (Jews later name her Eve), Eve is innocent, Lilith transform into a giant snake and manipulate Eve to eat a golden fruit and let Eve to let Adam to also eat it, after eating it, the fruit turn Adam and Eve mortal and they was been casted down to earth by the other gods. Lilith then use her lust, to seduce Adam and suck try his life source, she then cursed Eve and cause her to have an abortion. An angry Yahwha see revenge on Lilith by punishing her children, so, the battle between Yahwha and his angels, led by Michael and Lilith and her dragons, led by Satan, continue.

    In early story, Lilith and Satan was the good guy, Yahwha and Michael was the bad guy, but by Jewish era, it was reverse, because Jew believe they are children of Adam and Eve, not the creation of Lilith. Later, Lilith got wrote off, all together.

    Atheists question the logic of the bible, especially the book of Genesis, while Christian try to provide logical answers to the events in the bible.

    Genesis 1 :26 & 27 states:

    And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    The "us" means that there were more people with God.  Thus the beginning referred to in Genesis, was not the first beginning of creation.

    Every civilization has a creation myth, and the Jewish one is very similar to some others in that a first man and first woman give rise to the whole human race. Of course, stories grow in the telling - they begin orally and only get written down at a very late stage - and the end result is unlikely to make perfect sense. There are, for example, two very different Adam and Eve stories presented in the early chapters of Genesis.

    The important thing is to understand the message of the myth and not take it literally.

    The modern day man-made false doctrines and its many religious leaders of the world have all become completely blinded themselves. Many people will sit around to watch the many greedy and get rich television preachers such as the false teacher Joel Osteen. Mr. Osteen's many little blind followers will swallow up everything the greedy man says hook, line, and sinker. its much like a cotton candy and lollipop church circus to make one feel good. People fail miserably at ever doing any of there own independent research to verify what the preacherman is saying to be actual, factual, or truth. Often times after researching a sermon one will find that the preacherman has taken the words of the book out of context, shortned the words, or even added to. The truth is Adam and Eve were flooded out in the flood and everybody else died too. The only people who survived the flood were Noah, his wife, there three sons, there three sons wives, and all the animals upon the ark that Noah built. After the flood waters were gone and the flood ended. Noah and his family began procreating from that point forward.

    Taking I literal Biblical account, which I take, we learn in Genesis 5:4 that Adam and Eve had sons and daughters.  Up until chapter 5 it only names 3 sons but we have no idea just how many sons and daughters they had in total but in all likelihood a lot.  They were commanded to be fruitful and multiply and there was not a whole lot of activities to do at that time but work and have sex (no tv to watch lol).  It is not until the law of Moses that people are directly commanded to not have sex with siblings.  It is gross for us to imagine because it is so foreign to us but scientifically speaking and taking the biblical account into perspective Adam and Eve would of been created genetically perfect.  They were created directly by God in perfection.  After the fall and creation becoming contaminated by sin it would take generations for the gene pool to become more and more contaminated until it was absolutely forbidden for siblings to sleep together.

    Good question! In Genesis 5:4, the bible says "After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters." In the context of this scripture we can see that 'Cain' and 'Abel' were not the only children Adam and Eve gave birth to. According the tradition from the beginning of time, people marry their relatives and this was because of the Sin Adam and Eve had committed in the garden of Eden. As time went on, people stopped marrying their siblings/relatives, which is exactly what the bible preaches. So Cain's wife is literally his sister, who is one of Adam's daughters.
    In case you missed it, read Genesis 5:4 again ""After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters."

    Simple, the Bible says in Gen. 5:4 that "he begat sons and daughters:" meaning that those weren't his only children. In fact, after Cain killed Abel it says that they begat another son and called his name Seth. Apparently they intermarried.

    Well, according to the Islamic beliefs. Adam and Eve were both alone in this earth, then they started having children, Eve had twins in each pregnancy - a boy and a girl - the next pregnancy were twins too and so on. After the children grew up each boy married a girl but not his twin sister but the sister from other twins. That happened because of the need of special provisions according to the case. Such marriage was forbidden later by prophets because the amount of population was increasing and people do not need that kind of marriages anymore. smile

    The bible we have is only part of the books that recorded history.  I feel that one owes it to him self, or herself to read the lost books of the bible and the forgotten books of eden.  If I may humbly remark and then ask the question, why do people hide from history?  when the words of the bible written, saying don't ADD TO OR TAKE AWAY FROM THIS BOOK, actually more volumes existed than we have in our common bible today. so those who closet themselves to the narrowed down version, limit themselves from knowing many events, history, and much more.   the lost books record fairly accurately adam and eves life and journeys outside the garden.. how they learned to live, other family members, etc..  why would you accept traditional and denominational fears or taboos against the rest of the writings?  my heart races with excitement when I read about things such as how adam learned to survive in caves and how to use  and control fire, spears, and to protect themselves from animals and their diet and their spiritual journey, yes they had a type of walk/ journey that they lived and it is recorded well enough in the lost books and forgotten books.  they are just as valid as the bible we have, but not cannonized or accepted in many churches... I wonder what GOd will say to us one day.. you had much more you could have read about my world, my people.. ... people are scaredy cats sometimes and very controlled by organized religion, because it in itself has been ravaged and torn and restructured to fit each successive civilizations preferences..

    Such questions and debates as this one will persist as long as God's ways are not man's ways.
    That mankind developed from the dust of the earth, and that when humans were developed into the image of God and at that point were given spirit (as in Michelangelo's famous painting) I accept as both evolved and "created."
    That there was an original human father who had children with a human mother, seems obvious.
    That they had children of both sexes by God's design seems equally obvious.
    That some children of one sex procreated with some children of the opposite sex is obviously the way all children are created.
    The debates over Creation vs. Evolution, and which sons with which daughters can go on and on.

    it has been shown from research into Genetics that every man and every woman on the Planet descend from one male and one female. National Geographic have a couple of excellent YouTube videos on the subject although they originally dated them at 200,000 years ago and 60,000 years ago respectively.
    Recent Research has suggested that they both lived around 20,000 years ago and were contemporary with each other (original research said maybe they weren't).
    So science no longer questions the idea of an "Adam and Eve" but does still ask the question of where they came from and how, were they 'original creations?' like the Bible says (it got the fact that there was an original couple right!) or did they 'evolve' from an earlier as yet undiscovered species?
    The big problem with evolution is that for one species to 'evolve' from another is that it would require adding to the information in the genetic blueprint of each 'original' species. That requires an outside source for it to happen (the information has to come from somewhere and can't happen 'by chance!') and the real argument is where the source of the information is!
    Back to the original question, if you allow for creation then you can also show that mankind was created without blemishes in the gene pool hence there would not be any genetic imperfections in the first Humans and there would be none of the later issues that have arisen from 'genetic inbreeding' as the principle of 'atropy' had not yet taken effect hence Adam and Eve's sons and daughters mating with each other while it might sound strange or 'wrong' to us it actually had no harmful effects on the Human gene pool (unlike wht it would do today).
    Even if you accept the evolution model you still have the fact that we are all descended from the same couple hence their sons and daughters must have mated with each other no matter which way you look at the issue, that's what both science and the Bible logically say!
    I do have a couple of hubs that deal with the issue of evolution or creation if you want to have a look further.

    Now this is the REAL story of Adam & Eve. There really WAS NOT an Adam and Eve. About 300 years after Jesus died and rose, people started to lose him and were not able to reach him, so it got around that if they took a special "herb drug" they would connect, so in the secret meetings they had back then the drug was free flowing. The Roman Empire found out and just like here, they banned it regionally. So how to get this drug to the people???? OH, make up a story about Adam and Eve and only those who were in the know and those in the meetings knew that the secret drug would now be hidden in apples, which were always being sent back and forth from county to county back then. So when a couple thousand apples were sent to territories, the drug was hidden in them, thus the story of Adam & Eve. Simple. It was a code story to tell them where the drug was. The Romans who stopped the apple sellers were not cued in, and so they got away with it, and thousands of years went by and the story got in as a Bible story. That's the truth.

      Provide book & vagueness!

    This is an old question.  The Bible is God's revelation to us.  It doesn't account for every, single thing that has ever happened.  Can God create a stone so big he can't move it?  What's next?

      Jn 21:25 "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."

    Long after Adam and Eve, we read that siblings and other near kin did marry each other until God forbade it. Abraham married his half sister, Sarah. Isaac married his cousin Rebecca. If Abraham married his sister, it should not be surprising that Adam and Eve's children probably married each other. We human beings often think that God is governed by laws. A thingis wrong or right because He says so. God can make anything possible. He created genes and DNA. If he says siblings can marry and procreate in one age, they can. If he says they can't in another age, they shouldn't. If they do, they reap consequences like the royal Hapsburg family who ruined their offspring by constant inbreeding. The bible may seem like a myth to some, but those prophecies in it have almost all come to pass! Choose your following; that's your right. I choose the Almighty Creator. That's my right. Good choices and peace to all.

    ....It goes without saying that it is a miracle that god creates..researches can proove nothing concerning such topics..Only God knows the reasons behind such a miracle ..Adam is the first person on Earth then Eve was created...Quran can explain all these things ..

    the sons procreated with their sisters.

    I assume that you assume that sibling marriage or intercourse was prohibited at this time but if so, then your assumption is wrong. Sibling sexual unions became prohibited after man sinned against God and began to slowly die (genetic mutations and degeneration)

    Also, after the fall at this time, descent was recorded according to the male lineage, so the daughters of Adam and Eve and many other important figures in the Torah and Holy Bible were omitted. It did not mean that they did not exist.

    I hope you asked the question above for the right reasons, and that I did answer your question.

    I'm not 100% on my history but I remember hearing something that Adam had a wife before Eve named Lillith. And she was sort of a demon and got saw she was bad a banished her from thr garden. Perhaps she is how Cain and Able reproduced. The woman lillith is where thr word lullaby came from ,but the stories weren't aboud rock a bye baby. Threy were horry stories to scar children into going to bed of following direction. It surely be har to believe that Adam,Eve,Cain and Able were incest. But like you said the bible don't mention how the world populated

    From how I learnt the story Cain and Abel were not the only children Adam and Eve had. They had two daughters and each brother married the other's sister.

    Miss Knowledge, this is a question I have asked a long time ago, about the same time I questioned God's son saw human's daughter as beautiful(Gen6). I asked people and surfed the internet for answers. I found those answers and the answers are many and differ from one another.

    But regarding your question; based on the Bible, i believe that Cain's wife is one of his sister. Remember that this is the beginning of human creation. When Eve gave birth to Cain, she said, "I have bring forth man". I think that other children were born and they were female and it was not mentioned in the bible before Cain. And yet again, other children male and female were born within Adam's lifetime. One of his daughter must be Cain's wife=his sister. Remember Lot? when there was no men for his daughter to procreate and continue the family line; his daughters slept with him. This is only my speculation.
    Here in Hubpages, there are many who are well versed in the Bible and theology and might have 'The Right Answer' that both of us might benefit by.

      Gen 5:4-5  Adam and Eve had more then just Cain and Abel. They lived to the precise age 930 years and when he was eight hundred years he fathered sons and Daughters .So no body had to sleep with sister and brothers. Cousins ,
